1. Find out what you like the most. It could belong to one category or items from different categories might appeal you. It is about time to get them out of your store room or cupboards. Clean them and prioritize on the basis of preference.

2. Now comes the part of choosing area to display arts. The trick here is you can display arts anywhere you want. In your kitchen or dining area or living room or bedroom or even bathroom. However, the category you choose to display may vary in the areas. If you are doing it for the first time, we suggest you to start the display work in the living room of your home. Living area is the most inviting area of home. This is the place you host your friends or simply laugh and enjoy conversations and banters with family. Living room is basically a social area of home. And thus makes a fantastic starting point for displaying collection. It will certainly add value to it. You can dedicate a wall to display arts. You can hang vintage frames of family pictures or simply picture from your last travel. You can even hang a set of classy vintage saucers or plates. Things as rare as a collection of stamp or even keys would look good provided you choose the right frames.
